I didn't ask for much this Christmas... in fact, I don't remember asking for anything at all, but somehow I was blessed with the best Christmas ever! I don't want to sound materialistic and just talk about the totally awesome presents I got this year (I will shortly though!), so I'll begin by saying that it was such a blessing to spend time with my family. We were able to visit my side of the family this year. We had a lot of fun just talking, playing games, eating food... lots and lots of food, and just being together. That may not seem like much, but I know that many people aren't able to spend time together during the holidays for whatever reason (work, travel, etc). Christmas really is blessed when you're with the ones you love.
Here's a few pics of Ava opening up (or playing with) her Christmas presents. She enjoyed every minute of it!
Now to talk about my presents (drum roll please)................
My husband surprised me BEYOND belief this year with.......... (are you on the edge of your chair?!!!)......... a brand spanking new photography studio! I'm talking the whole set-up! Not just one softbox, but 3!! A reflector with stand. A backdrop support system with 3 muslinbackgrounds. Gels. Barn Doors. ETC. ETC. ETC. Check out the pic of this awesome set-up!
We set the studio up in our home (in Reedsville, WV), and I am soooo excited to take many many photographs here!
The Canon EOS 7D with external flash and tripod were already mine and are placed here for a better visual of the whole studio :)
I'd love to hear what you think! And better yet, I'd love to photograph you! (P.S. - My photography business is JB gallery. Check it out at jb-gallery.com)
I could also go on about the other wonderful presents I got this year, including a new crib for our little one on the way (from my sisters and parents), a double stroller, a necklace, etc, etc.
I really truly am so very blessed!
I guess next year I won't ask for anything either ;)
